We aren't chain hotel or resort people as we want to get to know the real people of the areas new to us. El Velero was just great. We found all of the staff to be friendly and personable. They were always attentive and Luis was particularly helpful even if we never did get on a catamaran. The food was great--we were there to enjoy both BBQ and Taco nights. The hotel though older was clean and comfortable. The area outside had a nice, clean pool as well as plenty of seating. We enjoyed most of our time sitting there watching the ocean, the boats, the people going by, the sight and noises of the various "wild" life. A clear indication that they served amazing food for a good price was shown by the people not staying at the hotel who, while walking the beach, would stop…
Gabby at the reception desk was so helpful and her English was great. There were (2) waiters, both named Luis. Excellent service and food was awesome. Rooms are practical and comfortable. Well worth the affordable price.
The food is very good and reasonably priced. The wait staff is friendly, courteous, and efficient. The location and view are unbeatable. Great for any meal. It is right on the beach. I have been going there for 15 years and never been disappointed.
Super cheap for right up against the beach. Restaurant on premise with amazing staff and good Costa Rican food. Great air conditioning and decent WiFi. Clean hotel rooms considering you’re right next to the beach. Loved staying here and would for sure stay again!
I loved this hotel. It's literally right on the beach. The WIFI works really well here and the staff is super friendly! They gave you beach towels as well. They had a tv with several channels and the water in the shower was really hot. If I get the chance I will stay here again.
